As to your second point, Elendil's Heir said Colonel MacArthur was an officer who "led his men into battle". It's common knowledge that highland regiments have historically marched into battle playing bagpipes! So the aforementioned connection between music and battle is actually quite well documented.

Lastly, I was referring to the 1945 eruption of Mt. Ruapehu which claimed 150 lives, not the most recent 2006 eruption. My point was that while the loss of 150 lives is tragic, it pales in comparison to all the deaths that have occurred on battlefields during that same period.
